No matter how well I develop my talents, I still have to vacuum the house

My household chores do not go away with my successes at writing books about or studying rare cosmic concepts. Every week I have to vacuum. It is one of my responsibilities. While this sometimes aggravates me (and my egotism), without … Continue reading

I’m living in the Penthouse of the Tower of Babel

However, I am slowly coming to believe that I am no longer “hot shit.” Thanks to the challenging writings of Emanuel Swedenborg and George Gurdjieff, I can no longer put up the pretense of being a special or a good … Continue reading
